There may be more people living in detached parts of the parish (if there
were any) and, if so, the number may or may not be included in the figures
above. It is quite difficult to be sure from the population tables.
- 1861 Census
- MITFORD. The decrease of population in most of the parishes comprised
in the Mitford District is attributed to the migration of labourers
to towns, and to Yorkshire and Northumberland, &c."
